The National Hurricane Center recently warned: “Tropical-storm-force winds from #Dorian could begin in parts of Florida *as early as* Sunday morning.

“Now is the time to think about what kinds of preparations you might need to make and listen to advice from your local emergency officials.”

In its latest advisory, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) said: “Residents should begin to execute their hurricane plans and listen to advice given by local emergency officials.

“The dangerous hurricane is forecast to make landfall in Florida late this weekend.

“There is an increasing likelihood of a prolonged period of hazardous weather conditions that could last for a couple of days in parts of Florida early next week.

NOAA added: “The risk of life-threatening storm surge along portions of the Florida east coast has increased, although it is too soon to determine where the highest storm surge will occur.

“The risk of devastating hurricane-force winds along the Florida east coast and peninsula early next week has also increased, although it is too soon to determine where the strongest winds will occur.”

Dorian could be the most powerful hurricane to smash into the east coast of Florida since Hurricane Andrew in 1992.

The exact path of the dangerous hurricane is unknown, as just a slight variation in its track could impact different states.

Accuweather Senior Meteorologist Adam Douty explained: “A very small fluctuation in the overall weather pattern will have a large influence in where Dorian ultimately tracks and how it impacts the continental US.

“If Dorian does slow and turns to the north, impacts in the Carolinas would be much more significant while Florida would be spared from major damage.”

Satellite images are showing the churning winds of hurricane Dorian, and the ominously black eye of the storm.

The Coast Guard Captain of the Port has warned to expect hurricane-force winds, setting port condition Whiskey for Port Canaveral in Florida.
